Today The Country celebrates National Lamb Day. Jamie relaxes the "no meat in the studio" rule and enjoys a delicious lamb roast with Executive Producer Rowena Duncum.
On with the show:
Mike and Ryley Short:
We talk to Fielding couple who found love at Fieldays as the countdown to the 50th National Agricultural Fieldays at Mystery Creek on June 13-16 continues.
Today is National Lamb Day as we celebrate 136 years since the sailing ship Dunedin docked in London after 98 days at sea with more than 5000 frozen sheep carcasses on board.
We ask National's new leader about National Lamb Day, whether he called Jacinda a "stupid little girl" and whether the country is learning to like him.
Shock! Horror! Our Australian correspondent is a Grey Nomad! Plus we talk about an Australasian FTA with the EU.
Peter Reidie and Sam Casey:
Courtesy of Farmlands, fans of farming and footy, we preview this week's Super Rugby as we talk fuel and footy … and Lashes saves the day in the absence of Joey Wheeler!
